Sunset over Lake Van

There is massive police presence in Van, where many of the locals celebrate their Kurdish roots at a time of high tension following the killing of thirteen Turkish soldiers in Diyarbakir last week by Kurdish terrorists. The Kurdish colours of red, yellow and green were out in force at this music festival and the police kept their distance, albeit dressed in riot gear with armoured vehicles parked in the nearby streets, three just outside our hotel.
